house work

I knew it — you’ve been wondering where I’ve been and what I’ve been up to. Actually, you haven’t. We’re probably friends on Facebook and you probably keep tabs on my comings and goings through that particular time-sucking social media outlet.

I love facebook.

Anyway. It’s been almost two whole weeks since I’ve written and although I would like to say that I’ve been keeping busy being the best wife that anyone can be, the fact that The Husband specifically requested that I continue blogging regularly months ago would prove that I’ve got some work to do. But really, I have been busy trying to be the best wife that I can be.

This has recently shown itself by the great revelation I had that I am now the House Project Assistant. The Husband has mentioned various things around the house that need to be worked on and a few weeks ago I realized that as the person who is home 80% of the time (that’s a random number that I just decided sounded good and reasonable), I should be making some of these things happen.

So, I was taught how to use a caulking gun and took on an unfinished room. Last night we made some of the final touches to one of our guest rooms.

It might not have stuck out to you as you glanced at that photo, but all the trim is white. It used to be stained wood. And now it’s white. I made the genius decision back when the diamonds I wear on my hand were quite new that we would paint all the trim in the house. 7 months, 2 coats of primer, and 2 coats of finish later we have one room with transformed trim.

And I love it. It was worth the two days of painting it required.

I’m just not sure how quickly the rest of the house will become white.

  1. Just a thought…. maybe all white trim upstairs and wood downstairs?

    ** when people used to make suggestions on decorating my house I would feel defensive of my choices…. and feel that I needed a CLEAR reason why I chose something … I have gotten over it… you can say … because it is YOUR house! 🙂

    LOVE your house by the way … you two are making it JUST BEAUTIFUL.
